Whoops! Apocalypse...

Oh my God. It's finally here.

But wait, what's this?

After thirty-five years of self-indulgent, extensive and discursive foot-noting, Another Bloody Century is a bold experiment in parsimony. The text is supported strictly by references, with no footnotes. This is a dramatic departure for the author, who has long been in the bad habit of all but conducting a dialogue, even a debate, between text and footnote.

I loved those fucking footnotes. I haven't felt this bereft since George Sewell left UFO. And I wasn't even born then.
